The George Washington University Law School and Berkeley Law School will be holding the fifth annual Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC) on June 7-8, 2012. The PLSC aims to assemble a wide array of privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. It will bring together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government). Our goal is to enhance ties within the privacy law community and to facilitate dialogue between the different parts of that community (academy, government, industry, and public interest). The PLSC is an annual event, alternating between Berkeley and GW Law Schools.
Dan Solove, John Marshall Harlan Research Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School and Hogan Lovells Senior Policy Advisor, is one of the conference co-organizers. Additionally, Chris Wolf, Co-head of Hogan Lovells Privacy and Information Management practice, will speak on "Sounding Off Against the Watchful Eye: How the Administrative Procedure Act Can be an Effective Tool for Protecting Privacy" on Friday, June 8 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.
